Great Treat Idea for your IR/Metabolic Equine

So, I have an IR pony mare. Our gelding is fine, and the kids give him some treats at times, like baby carrots, apple pieces or peppermint nuggets. Well, I got to feeling a little sorry for my pony mare because she never gets treats (vet said, "No sugar, at all, ever.") So she stands there treatless while Bucky gets a yummy morsel. But I finally found something that I can use as a 'treat' for her! I am using Standlee Alfalfa/Timothy Mini Cubes. They have an NSC of 8% and they are small, and you can break them into smaller pieces if you need to. She thinks they are treats and she loves them. Mind you, I don't give her very many at all, but it is nice to finally have something I can give myIR/Metabolic Equine buddy for a little reward now and then. And my gelding likes them, too. The bag is big, and not completely inexpensive, but if you just use it as a treat only, it is really inexpensive.
